Ric Flair Says “Business Opportunities” Are The Reason For His WWE Release


Former WWE Superstar Ric Flair recently spoke with PEOPLE to discuss his WWE release. According to Flair, there are some “business opportunities” that he wants to pursue and WWE wasn’t along for the ride. You can check out some highlights from the interview people:

On why he asked for his release: “We just didn’t see eye to eye on some business opportunities that I wanted to pursue, so I asked for my release. There has been no animosity and everything has been on friendly terms.”

On denying reports that he was upset with booking in WWE: “It happens sometimes in business; you just don’t see eye to eye. But how could I have any animosity towards the company who made me who I am? They literally made me who I am. Some of my best friends in the world work at the company. How could I possibly be upset with the company where my daughter is currently the most decorated woman’s wrestler in history?”

On his departure: “It was a mutually agreed-upon decision and I will be moving forward to pursue other exciting endeavors such as my own line of wine, my own network, as well as comic books. I had to make this decision personally for my business and my brand.”
